Meticulously Crafted Luxury Oceanfront Home in Kohala Waterfront

In my last blog post I wrote about the construction boom underway in Kohala Waterfront, a small private community tucked in along the Kohala Coastline just north of Kawaihae.

While there are still a few good opportunities left to build your own custom home (At 1.38 acres, MLS# 269067 is the second largest lot in the entire subdivision and a good value at $689,000), I wanted to let folks know about some of the excellent oceanfront homes also available in this gated enclave.

Kohala Waterfront Luxury Home (MLS# 270776)

59-116 Lauipala Place [listed with my colleague Clint Williams of White Mountain Realty] provides a trifecta of benefits for Hawaii living: privacy, luxury, and mesmerizing ocean views.

Noteworthy Features

The exceptional oceanfront home was completed just last year. Nestled on a little over half an acre of landscaped grounds with jaw-dropping ocean views of the Kohala coastline this custom built home offers nearly 4,000 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms and four and a half baths.

The entire back wall of the great room features floor to ceiling glass pocket doors to take maximum advantage of the oceanfront views!

As someone who has been in the real estate and construction industries for nearly four decades, I’m quick to notice the level of detail in the finishes of any given property. So I know that discerning homebuyers will appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the construction of this elegant home. Here you’ll find Kumuru hardwood floors, travertine tile in the bathrooms, and a phenomenal custom gourmet kitchen adjoining a large dining area and great room.

This great room lives up to its name with vaulted wood ceilings and plenty of room for entertaining

There are lots of other nice features to this home, like vaulted wood ceilings in the main living areas. The builders also took full advantage of the mesmerizing oceanfront views with a floor-to-ceiling opening along the entre back wall of the great room overlooking the ocean.

The master bathroom features complete privacy to enjoy mesmerizing ocean views while relaxing in the large soaking tub

The master bathroom features the same type of floor-to-ceiling opening, enabling you to unwind in a large soaking tub in total privacy while gazing at the ocean. This kind of design is perfect for tropical indoor/outdoor living and discreet glass pocket doors enable you to secure the home when you’re not around.


Enjoy your in-ground pool with spectacular oceanfront views!

A large covered lanai (deck) looks over the in-ground swimming pool. In the winter months you have a front row seat to watching whales swim and play just offshore!
